Porn Industry Rejoices as Condom Initiative Fails
Protection comes in many forms. A controversial proposition in California to require adult film performers to wear condoms — which would also have allowed private citizens to sue porn stars for not wearing protection — has failed. Proposition 60 was supported by health activists saying condom use sets a good example and is key for performers’ well-being. But the porn industry contended that public access to performers’ personal information would have enabled harassment and abuse, noting that regular STI testing is already standard — and 54 percent of voters agreed.
